Scorpions

    Will their poison raise with fighting or do you have to tame one with already GM poison...?

    It says they can range from 80-100 poisoning. Wasn't sure if they train that up themselves or what...

    And how effective are they in combat? Say a set of 4-5 with the pack instinct DMG bonus all trained up.

    They will all train up to GM poisoning(will take a while though)

    Theres 2problems combat wise with scorps

    1) they have so low hp and resists(i think they train to 125 hp)

    2) near enough everything can cure themselves.

    Saying that 3 scorps and a bake tank (cant think of a better low slot tank) will TEAR through a swoop im almost certain.

    Also could be a laugh PvP wise (imagin almost instant DP's!! and taking fast damage!)

    That's what i'm planning on with the scorpions(PvP)... pack of 4 or 5 for pack instinct, all GM poison...all attacking the same target, see how fast people can cure themselves =)

    Basically just for sh!tz and giggles.

    Ya, making another chr template to use scorpions though. You don't need nearly as high taming/lore to control them which is nice...

    Thought about a pack of frenzieds too. I might take taming/lore higher so I can use either pack.

    Pack of scorps + pack of frenzieds together used properly would be near impossible to survive...Dunno how you could survive all that damage at once and being DP'd at the same time. Even with evasion...
